Day 1: Ceramic Veneers

All you always needed to know and practice with veneers:

• Silicon indexes to control tooth reduction.
• Discoloration and rules of preparation.
• Caries defect/old composite class 3. prep techniques.
• Class 4. practical solutions.
• Class 5 (abfraction). prep designs.
• Diastema and tooth spacing. To prep or not to prep.
• Black triangles.
• Crowding / teeth rotations
• Window prep
• Working with incisors and canines of upper and lower jaws
• Easy and simple clinical protocols step-by-step for veneers

Please note: all caries defects will be made in real time and will be restored with composites which will assist in understanding veneer prep design of different clinical cases. The course will allow for participants to present cases which will be simulated as exercises and resolved practically as a group.

Day 2: Posterior Ceramics (In-on-veneerlays)

Lecture Component (30 min)

• Bonded ceramic restoration for posterior teeth: when and how.

• To cover or not to cower the cusps.
• Immediate dentin sealing.
• Deep margin elevation.
• Adhesive cementation.

Hands-On Component

This workshop provides an insight to minimal invasive and precise preparations of posterior teeth in onlays and veneer-lays (upper and lower jaw). Step-by-step techniques will consist of:
